Book Launch BLOCKCHAIN: THE NEXT EVERYTHING A CONVERSATION WITH AUTHOR STEPHEN P. WILLIAMS AND BEATRIZ HELENA RAMOS
What is blockchain? Why does everyone from tech experts to business moguls to philanthropists believe it is a paradigm-shifting technology, bound to revolutionize society as significantly as the internet? Indeed, why is blockchain touted as The Next Everything?
In this deft, fascinating, and easy-to-digest introduction to one of the most important innovations of recent times, Stephen P. Williams answers these questions, revealing how cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are just one example among dozens of transformative applications that this relatively new technology makes possible. He interprets the complexity into digestible anecdotes, metaphors, and straightforward descriptions for readers who don’t know tech, and explains all of blockchain’s most important aspects: why this so-called digital ledger is unhackable and unchangeable; how its distributed nature may transfer power from central entities like banks, government, and corporations to ordinary citizens around the world; and what its widespread use will mean for society as a whole.
Join us on March 26th for a conversation and book launch with Stephen P. Williams, author of Blockchain: The Next Everything. The conversation will be moderated by Beatriz Helena Ramos, founder of DADA.nyc
